About Mrs. Behnke...
Phone: (480) 812-6163
Hello there! I’ve been living in Arizona for the past several years with my husband, but we are originally from Wisconsin! One of my favorite places in the world is hiking with our dog Rosie. As a family, we’ve loved exploring this great state. I’m also a huge fan of coffee, most weekends you can find me at a local coffee shop or smelling fancy candles at Target.
My Education and Professional Background
I studied Environmental Science for my Bachelor's Degree, but firmly knew I belonged teaching tiny humans. So I completed a Masters in Early Childhood Education and I'm happily back in PreK!
My Educational Philosophy
As an educator, I believe that laughing is part of learning and that play is a foundational tool to be used in every classroom. Children should be in charge of their learning experiences, but it’s my goal to still support and challenge them! They are all unique and important, so I will respond by teaching in diverse ways depending on what THEY need most!
